Cyrus Shahrad, the man behind Hiatus, has released his latest album ‘All The Troubled Hearts’ in full on his Soundcloud and Bandcamp profiles. I listened to it and I believe it’s more than worth it.
Based in South London, the part-time writer and part-time musician finds inspiration in his Iranian roots and his life in UK to create cinematic tunes, electronic sounds that will truly captivate you. His debut album, ‘Ghost Notes’, was largely formed out of samples he recorded while being a journalist on Iran, and on his second LP ‘Parklands’ he recruited the singer Shura to give “a human element to it.” – what a start.
Watch the video for the mesmerizing ‘Father’ – my indisputable favourite – and listen to the whole album below.
